Do you believe in one-eyed monsters? Greek gods? This week, readers from two Washington, D.C. schools - Kimball Elementary and Jefferson Academy - discuss Mary Pope Osborne’s take on Homer’s classic adventure “Tales from the Odyssey.” Mary talks about writing a modern take on Odysseus - as well as her best-selling “Magic Treehouse” series.
